So just what is this thing we call work life balance? Does it even exist? Is it something that deep down we all know that we should aspire to, or even better should actually achieve? Are we scared to try?
In this last couple of years its gotten harder for sure. The work place has gotten tougher, business has gotten tougher, just hanging in there has gotten tougher. Technology has advanced to such an extent that the line between work and home has gotten ever more blurred. Will we ever find the answer?
There is no such thing as perfect work life balance. Don’t let anyone ever tell there is. This is not something that can be answered in a text book. Do your best to do what works for you. Do your best to do that which leaves you fulfilled.
